Road Closure Alert

3/8/2013 Foothill Extension Construction Alert
Crews will be constructing the grade crossing improvements at California Avenue between Evergreen Avenue and Duarte Road as part of the 11.5-mile Metro Gold Line Foothill Extension light rail project. This work requires a full closure of California Avenue at the railroad crossing (just north of Duarte Rd) for approximately five (5) months.

The five month closure of California Ave will begin on Saturday, March 9, 2013 and continue until the end of July 2013.  On Saturday, March 9, 2013 the California Ave/Duarte Rd intersection will be completely closed to traffic for one day only - from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. - while crews place traffic control equipment. Once in place, Duarte Rd will reopen to traffic, but California Ave will be closed for five months to construct the train crossing improvements.

Construction work hours for the California Ave crossing work will be 7:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m., Monday through Saturday.  Note: Occasional longer work hours, possible work on Sundays and night work may be necessary to complete this work as scheduled.

California Avenue will be fully closed at the railroad crossing for five (5) months.  No left turns from westbound Duarte Rd onto southbound California Ave will be allowed. Traffic will be allowed to proceed east and west on Duarte Rd through the California Ave intersection (with the exception of a one-day closure of the intersection on Saturday, March 9, 2013).

A temporary pedestrian crossing will be available for pedestrians traveling north-south on California Ave. A detour route for motorist will be in place and signage will be posted to direct motorists.  Local surrounding businesses will remain open and accessible during this activity. Motorists are advised to expect delays and use alternate routes.

Construction schedules are subject to change for various reasons, including, but not limited to, weather conditions and unforeseen delays.
